I am a major in pure mathematics
attending Columbia University. I have a lot of experience with all things math
-related, and am fluent in all fields of high-school level and low-level undergraduate mathematics. I will be able to comfortably help anyone with any problems they are having in:AlgebraGeometryPrecalculus
(single and multi-variable)Linear Algebra
I have some experience tutoring in high school, and have been very successful explaining and helping students with material in the past.
I'm from a mid-sized town in central Illinois called Quincy. That's where I grew up, but now I am attending college in New York City, where I plan to stay most of the time.
I'm very into mathematics, which is why my level of experience with higher-level college subjects is so high compared to most of my peers. That is, a lot of this stuff I had already taught to myself before taking the class. I really enjoy learning about math, doing math, and of course, teaching and helping others with math.
Outside of class, I have a lot of hobbies, including but not limited to reading
(I am predisposed to fantasy and classic fiction), cooking
, riding my bike around the city, playing the piano
(a lot of improvisation and composition), and doing stand-up comedy. On campus, I am involved with a few clubs, most notably the math and philosophy
groups, and I also edit and write for the university philosophy publication, and will be involved in an a Capella group.
Although they are not with me at school, I have seven cats at home. Indeed, I'm a huge fan of cats and all things cat-related, and could talk for hours about them.
Most of all, I just love being chill and not letting myself become too stressed out about life. I believe that the more one worries about achieving a preset and predefined goal of "success," typically that which society enforces, the less likely he is to ever find happiness. Ultimately, happiness is what I'm looking for, so I just want to take things easy, follow where life leads me, and us what I already know about how to attain happiness in order to get there.
